Learn more about your library at upcoming free classes

techThe Shawnee Public Library is showing off the library’s resources for downloadable materials and more at a pair of upcoming free classes at the library.

Dive in to Overdrive is set for 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6. The workshop is an opportunity for learning how to use the library’s downloadable content through the service OverDrive. Participants are encouraged to bring their mobile device so they get a hands-on chance to learn how to download materials with their own device. Devices that can be used to download books from the library include eReaders, smartphones, computers or iPads.

Library 101 at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, takes a deeper look at several of the databases offered by the library, including Novelist for finding good reads, WorldCat to request titles and much more.

Space is limited so registration is required to attend either program.
